The Three Angry Ladies (Shayna O’Neill, Emily Louise Perkins, and Emma Clarkson) will present Stay Mad, Make Art: A Benefit Concert for Immigrant Families Together at The Center at West Park (165 West 86th Street at Amsterdam Avenue., New York, NY 10024) on Monday, September 16, 2019 at 8pm (doors and bar open at 7:30pm). Tickets ($25 General; $50 VIP; $1000 Angel, which includes front row seating and unlimited drinks) are available for advance purchase at staymadmakeart.brownpapertickets.com. All proceeds will support Immigrant Families Together, a network of Americans committed to rapid response unification of families separated by the ‘zero tolerance’ policy.

The Three Angry Ladies are New York City-based women working in the arts who recognize the urgency of the political and social crises of 2019, and seek to effect positive change in the wider community by tapping into the resources—and the desire for action—of the theatre and arts community. O’Neill is a freelance AEA Stage Manager in NYC and the Production Manager of the Yale Baroque Opera Project in New Haven, CT; Perkins is an actor, writer, and theatre-maker based in New York; and Clarkson is the Associate Production Manager at the Manhattan School of Music.

Stay Mad, Make Art will be hosted by Vodka Stinger (Feinstein's/54 Below), featuring downtown luminary Diana Oh ({my lingerie play}; The Infinite Love Party) with performances by the New York music and theatre community including Kennedy Kanagawa (Dinner with Georgette at NYTW; The Good Swimmer at BAM), Nadia Quinn (Steven Spielberg's West Side Story; The Robber Bridegroom at Roundabout Theatre Company; Bloody, Bloody, Andrew Jackson on Broadway), Vira Slywotzky (Vira & Friends; Mirror Visions Ensemble) with Clint Edwards (Requiem Prayers for soprano, piano, and cello at Carnegie Hall; My Beloved: a Ted Bundy Musical), and Rachel McKinney (With Love, U.S Podcast; co-founder of RoaN Productions) with Sound Design by Asa Wember (Selkie with Dutch Kills; Seagull Machine with the Assembly).

This benefit concert has been organized with the goal of maximizing charitable contributions to Immigrant Families Together by eliminating overhead costs wherever possible. Immigrant Families Together (IFT) is a rapid response group of volunteers who galvanized around the crises provoked by the zero-tolerance policy. They raise money to bail out parents and reunite them with their families, and they provide ongoing support – legal, medical, housing, clothing, food, and more – to these families as they proceed through their legal cases. The time and talent of every artist, technician, designer, and producer has been donated. The Center at West Park has donated its space, time, and equipment free of charge, and concessions, beverages, and raffle items are being donated by various organizations and individuals. The Three Angry Ladies would like to extend a very special thanks to: Lesser America www.lesseramerica.com, The Muse Project www.themuseprojectnyc.com, and Wishbone Theatre Collective http://wishbonetheatre.org
